Changed or not changed? Does it make sense to switch from Z Fold3 to Z Fold4? The differences are really minimal, but when aspects are improved, such as, for example, autonomy or rooms, it always benefits from everyday use, so let’s find out for whom, despite the price, it can make sense!
Weight and size
130.1 x 155.1 x 6.3mm (open) – 67.1 x 155.1 x 15.8mm (closed)
Android 12 – Unified UI 4.1.1
2176 x 1812
50 megapixels f/1.8
Front 10 megapixels
SOC and RAM
Qualcomm SM8475 Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 (4nm)
RAM 12 GB
HSPA 42.2/5.76 Mbps, LTE-A (7CA) Cat20 2000/200 Mbps, 5G
Packaging and content
AT package we find only a data / power cable with a USB-C connector on both sides.
Design and materials to the touch
Weight dropped by almost a dozen gram compared to the Z Flip3, approaching 263. thickness and from 6.3mm from open and from 14.2 millimeters or 15.8 when closed, depending on the side it is measured from, it is thicker than the hinged side. The construction is really well done, there is no lack of solidity and certification. IPX8 waterproof.
Is there a always-on display and how much connectivity we find: 5G, LTE, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, Samsung Pay, Android auto and Dex desktop interface.
internal display is a Dynamic AMOLED 2X Infinity Flex with resolution 2176 x 1812 QXGA+, 21.6:18 aspect ratio and adaptive refresh rate from 1 to 120 Hz. Outside we find instead Dynamic AMOLED 2X with permission 2316 x 904aspect ratio 23.1:9 and Update frequency adaptive from 1 to 120 Hz.The display quality is the same, the Z Fold3’s excellent quality, excellent colors, contrast, sun visibility and smoothness, and the same goes for the fold, which hasn’t become less noticeable.
Processor and Memory
CPU this is Snapdragon 8+ 1st generation with Andreno 730 GPU, 12 GB from RAM As well as 256, 512 GB or 1 TB from inner memory.
There battery this is 4.400 mAh and download 25 W by cable (50% in 30 minutes) or 15 W wirelessly with reverse wireless charging, as well as for autonomy improved by 10%. Excellent, since with the previous model I only arrived in the evening and now I still get there with 10% left.
Software and Ecosystem
The software we know is Android 12 with interface One UI 4.1.1 and we know how Samsung is impetuous As well as constant in updates. Its peculiarity compared to other folds is the presence of one bottom dock which allows us to open other applications while we are already using one, up to 3 with one in the window. Great use of such a large display that is now even easier to use.
Wide selection with SIM card use because it is compatible with eSIM but he still has dual nanoSIM slot. Otherwise, there are no problems with reception and sound quality in calls.
Photo and video
room compartment formed from:
- room main 50MP, f/1.8 with optical stabilization,
- room ultra wide angle 12MP, f/2.2 with 123° field of view,
- telephoto lens 3X 10MP, f/2.4, with optical stabilization,
- room interior 10 MP, f/2.4.
Excellent results, otherwise the sector is the same as the S22 and the difference from last year is visible. Photos in low light conditions, colors, contrasts, photos even up to 10X magnification and videos will satisfy everyone.
Applications and games
performance are at the top of the range, nothing to say, with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 fluidity As well as speed they are always guaranteed.
price this Z Fold4 belongs to 1879 euro for version 12/256 GB, 1999 euro for 12 / 512 GB e 2249 euros for 12/1TB. Is it worth it? It depends. I would recommend it to those who work very hard on the phone, receive a lot of emails, often write or do similar things, those who do not use it so much in business, then no, it is big and heavy, if it is not justified by the fact that he you get tired in the end! Either way, there are launch promotions and we’ve talked about them here!
